Set in the brilliant and diverse city of Baltimore, Accidental 
Lawyer, is a humorous, often irreverent portrayal of the 
dubious practice of personal injury law.

Jessica Snow has a crisp new law degree, a grinding 
ambition, and a pesky moral compass that is often at odds 
with her new job as an ambulance chaser. Her face and name 
appear on billboards and buses throughout the city, and if 
that isn’t enough to embarrass her mother, there’s a 
television commercial in the works.

Her elevated status has her wrangling with a local mob 
boss, duping a drug dealer, and confronting phony clients. 
With the help of her bold and brassy sidekick, Kari, Jess 
develops a remarkable proclivity for this ignoble profession 
by wrapping up difficult cases and finding new business in 
unexpected places.

When trumped-up murder charges are brought against 
her boss, she faces her biggest challenge yet—tracking 
down a killer. Along the way, Jess builds a new kind of 
family for herself, her own tribe, made up of friends, 
colleagues and clients, many of whom are sure to raise 
eyebrows at her mother’s dinner table.

Look out Stephanie Plum there’s a new girl in town and her name is Jessica Snow. Jessica is a accident lawyer. Chasing down ambulances to get those who have been hurt the money they deserve. With Kari as her side kick what could go wrong. Right?!

In this first book of a potentially great series, Jessica is faced with corruption, murder and snakes! When her boss’s good friend winds up murdered and the finger points to her boss, Jessica makes it her mission to prove his innocence. Will Jessica figure out the who done it or will Jessica be the next victim?

This book brings tons of fun and entertainment. It has a Janet Evanovich feel to it and could be the next Stephanie Plum series. It has a lot of potential with it’s fun and interesting characters. With tons laugh out loud moments. It even has the makings of a love triangle. I just love the whole vibe this book puts off. It is an eclectic mix of suspense and romantic comedy. It is sure to bring a smile to your face when you read it.

I really like Jessica’s character. She is fun, loyal, determined and honest. I think it is right fun how she puts the mob guy in his place. “Wink wink”. Her neighbor Ms. Bianco is an absolute riot. But you better not cross her, she just might shoot you.

Overall this book is a load of fun. I loved the characters, especially Mark, the hot sexy fireman. “Oh la la” The story is a steady paced read that will never lag in entertainment. You are sure to enjoy ever moment. So if you like a feel good silly comedy suspense, then this book is right up your alley.

About Kim Hamilton

Kim Hamilton

I believe that humor in all its forms is a handy weapon–a defense against unhappy, worrisome, aspects of life. It can be found in even the toughest situations if we look hard enough. And if we can find the courage to laugh at ourselves, all the better–it’s wildly therapeutic. That’s why I wrote Accidental Lawyer, to look back on a difficult time and see the humor. I practiced personal injury law on the streets of Baltimore for ten years. Being an ambulance chaser didn’t suit my professional or intellectual goals and it occasionally tugged at my ethics. A good sense of humor sprinkled with sarcasm and a hint of cynicism were my survival tools. The novel is a backhanded tribute to this profession and its unshakable stigma. It’s also a heartfelt bow to the otherwise, high-principled lawyers who wade in its murky waters. I live in the Baltimore suburbs with my husband in our partially empty nest. I have two accomplished daughters who make me proud every day. I consider myself a cool mom even though I drive a minivan, listen to a.m. radio and need help with my iPhone apps. When I’m not writing or reading, I’m likely watching sit coms or cooking shows, preferably with a chilled glass of pinot grigio at the end of a productive day.
